Mentor a San Francisco Public School Student !

San Francisco Education Fund

This has been a very challenging year-for students, families, and teachers. Now more than ever, students are eager to continue thriving in their academic and personal paths while reconnecting to their communities after not being able to see them for a whole year. Students need someone who can help them reach their full potential, someone who they can trust and is interested in how they’re feeling, in what they’re doing, and who truly cares about them. 

We are the San Francisco Education Fund, the nonprofit in charge of recruiting and training volunteers for San Francisco public schools. Every year we receive as many requests from teachers for mentors as we do for tutors and classroom assistants. Be a mentor to a San Francisco public school student and help provide a safe space for students for the current school year. The commitment is only one hour a week and that one hour can make a huge difference to a student.

About San Francisco Education Fund

Mission Statement

The San Francisco Education Fund's programming focuses on one goal: improving student success in San Francisco public schools. Because no single effort can yield the results we seek, the Education Fund utilizes a multi-faceted approach focused on teachers, volunteers, students, and strategic partnerships. The Education Fund's ongoing research, policy and public engagement work spans all of our program areas.


The San Francisco Education Fund believes that strong
public schools are critical to San Francisco's viability and that the community must take action to ensure their success. By acting as a bridge between the community and the classroom, the Education Fund increases the availability and impact of resources for students and teachers throughout San Francisco public schools.

Our integrated approach:

  • supports teachers with training and resources to enhance their classroom practice;
  • matches volunteer skills with teacher requests;
  • engages students to create positive changes in their schools;
  • unites families, service providers, businesses and others to build stronger school communities; and
  • informs district policy through community input and strategic partnerships.
